Lower fat with prosciutto
You can cut the fat content of many recipes by using a little prosciutto in place of a larger amount of normal ham or bacon, as just a little prosciutto will add lots of flavour.


  1. Heat grill to high. Lay the prosciutto out on a large baking sheet and sit a turkey steak on top, crossways. Spread the turkey with the pepperonata, then top with 2 slices of mozzarella, a few basil leaves and some seasoning. Fold the ends of the prosciutto around the cheese to enclose. Grill for 10 mins until golden and cooked through. Leave to rest for 2 mins.

  2. Cut the ciabatta into 4 or the rolls in half, then toast under the grill. Top with salad leaves, then sit the turkey on top and serve.
